Mojo 100th Sketch Parade Continues

Stampin up autumn splendor mojo monday

MojoMaria Today is Day 2 of a Seven-Day Mojo Monday celebration of Julee Tilman's 100th mojo sketch.  I'm going to do my best to attempt them all (in addition to the Pals Paper Arts Challenge on Thursday).   I adore challenges.

I get to introduce another new stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini, Autumn Splendor (available September 1).  This set includes three beautiful leaf patterns plus a double acorn stamp.  Gorgeous for fall.  Amazing with the coordinating Autumn Meadows Designer Series Paper (also available September 1).

It's late and I need to get some beauty sleep.  LOL.  However, I'll leave you with the products I used for this card (below) and a few helpful tips.  If you have a question about the card details, simply leave me a comment at the end of this post and I'll happily respond 🙂

  • The leaf was inked in VersaMark and heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder for a lovely shine and raised texture.
  • SO COOL:  Have you noticed the perforated edge on the Top Note Die?  It's incredibly easy to remove with Paper Snips (103579) and looks rich when layered over a a full (uncut) Top Note Die.  I like the way the black Top Note peeks behind the Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper.  Learned this little trick at the Stampin' Up! Convention.
  • Two Stampin' Up! must haves . . . the Modern Label Punch and Basic Black 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon.  They bring this design to life!
